FAITH Not FEAR: 2 Ways To Handle Fear

Happy Easter, y'all!!! 

Today in church the priest spoke about replacing FEAR with FAITH in all areas of our lives: relationships, work, living etc. As one who struggles with the many different faces of fear, this message really struck a chord with me. We ALL fear something; whether it is the past, present, future, or something seemingly innocuous to many, like a tiny bug on the ground, or a a big one for most: failure. 

There are TWO ways to deal with FEAR:

1) Forget Everything And Run.


2) Face Everything And Rise. 

Like most human beings, I struggle between the two, but TRY to muster up my courage to take the second approach whenever I can. It's kinda like working out; you have to exercise the muscle to keep it functioning optimally. So, here's to feeling the fear and trusting the faith! 

My wish for YOU: your life is full of FAITH not FEAR. {and LOVE!} 

How do YOU deal with fear? Share your tips below... 

Blissfully Yours,
